I recently started having a problem with my 8GB Fuze. When listening to MP3 or WMA files the player will suddenly shut down. When I restart it goes into the “Refreshing Media” mode and does it’s thing. Everything seems normal after the Refresh, except that it may well repeat the same thing again in a few minutes.
This only occurs when I physically move the player- could be some sort of stress associated with the output cord. It does not happen when I am listening to FM. So far, it does not happen when the player is locked (but can go into it as soon as the player is unlocked). I normally use a 4GB SD card, but the player will do it with the card in or out (I generally have Podcasts on the SD and my music on the main memory. It has happened when listening either to the SD card or the internal memory (but not FM).
Version is 1.02.026A. The problem is only recent and does not appear to be related to that update.
